A few short hours later, the teams file into the Boardroom, where George and Carolyn await. Then Trump comes strolling in. George is first to give Protégé's results. He thinks they "did very well." They sold $6283 worth of water. That's about eleven pallets, give or take one, I think. You can account for a good bit of it very easily -- five went to the guy who didn't want to be unreasonable, one went to the guy who took the twenty a week for four weeks, I think one went to the guy who Troy offered to help move stuff to make room for it, and probably one or two went to the amalgamation of little bars and restaurants they hit. VersaCorp, on the other hand, brought in about $4015. That's roughly seven pallets. You know Boyfriend Bill sold three of them just about single-handedly -- the one to the nightclub guy and the two to the "buzz" people Ereka was in the middle of turning off. Trump turns to Ereka and asks what happened. "We pushed it, we really did," she insists. George explains that Protégé won the task with two sales to distributors, which accounted for more than half their sales -- about $3400. That's only about six pallets, so it appears that the majority of the money came from the one guy Troy did so well with who bought the five pallets at the truckload price. Though I guess they were worth a little less than five regular ones, come to think of it, so there are...maybe two or three other ones? Anyway, Troy made the majority of the Protégé money, and he made a lot of it with that one sale. That one five-pallet guy gave them easily a third of their take for the entire three days, I think. George tries to call Troy the "hero" of the distributor sales, and Troy carefully redistributes the credit among himself, Amy, and Heidi. That's one of the really nice qualities in Troy, I think -- he does have a huge ego, but he's confident enough that he doesn't have to have all the credit all the time. He shares credit very easily and very comfortably, and that's what makes it more credible when he calls people out for doing poorly, as he did with Jessie, or for acting ridiculous, like Katrina last week when she was all mad as a wet ham.
At just this point in the Boardroom, Trump notes that there's hammering from one of his tenants who's having some work done, and he dispatches someone to put a stop to it. Just kind of a funny little aside, the way you still have to send the army to crush a troublesome nuisance from time to time, no matter how rich you get. Trump then turns to Heidi and tells her that she needs to choose which two people will be going on the helicopter ride with her. She chooses Amy and Troy, and deservedly so. I felt for Kwame, but there wasn't much else Heidi could do, because Amy and Troy were with her when she closed the big deals, and Amy is generally very helpful, I think, with organizing and managing tasks. When Heidi chooses Troy, Trump says, "You're doing a great job for Idaho, you know that, don't you? They're going to give you a parade." Troy manages a sheepish smile and a humble "Thank you, sir." The cowboys of Boise are proud indeed. Trump then tells VersaCorp to "sweat it out in the suite" until it's time to come to the Boardroom.
